The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 took the mobile world by storm when it made its debut roughly one month ago, and Sammy appears to have great faith in the Note series, for good reasons. So far the market seems to have had a very positive reaction towards the Note 4, and as a new report from Korea revealed earlier today, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4’s sales figures are actually pretty great. As it turns out, roughly 4.5 million Note 4 units have been sold since the handset’s market debut, which is quite a good figure given the fact that the smartphone was available only in Korea and China for the most part.
The big question however, is whether or not this will be enough to compensate for Samsung’s dwindling profits registered over the first three quarters of the year.
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Sales Are Positive
As a quick history lesson, the original Samsung Galaxy Note reached the 5 million units sold mark in 5 months of market availability. The next Note in the series achieved the 5 million mark in only 2 months, whereas last year’s Note 3 reached the same figure in half that time.
The Korean media now reports that Samsung managed to sell 4.5 million Note 4 units in the first month of availability, which is 500k units less than the Note 3. However, the Galaxy Note 4 was available for purchase only in Korea and China for a good part of the first month, so overall the Note series seems to have a good momentum.
Unfortunately, so far Samsung’s overall profits for year 2013 have not been as positive as the company was expecting. The Korean tech giant is now putting a lot of faith in the Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy Alpha, hoping that these new gadgets, treated with a hint of aluminum, will compensate for this year’s losses. Given the 4.5 million figure registered by the Note 4, these two smartphones might just not be enough, but at least the Note series seems to be doing fine on its own. Any thoughts on how these vents might affect the future of the company? Feel free to share them below.
